Live Performances

This is a thread  along the line of 'Now Watching' or 'Now Playing' for plays, gigs, ballets, operas, etc.

Last night I went to see Chicago at the Birmingham Alexandra Theatre. As most people probably know, it's as much a cabaret act as a straight musical and in that regard it mostly works. The live music was great and the set dressing was Spartan but effective.

That said, a couple of songs hang around long after they've made their point ('Mr Celophane' jumps to mind), and the finale was a pretty lacklustre affair with Roxie and Velma doing an uninspired dance routine alone on stage.

I'd rate it either a high 3/5 or a low 4/5.
